The Museum of Contemporary Art, North Miami (MOCA) is launching its Fall season with the presentation of Rolando Peña: Black Gold. In this exhibition, Peña explores oil as a substance that has marked the destiny of of modern and contemporary life. Black Gold is “participatory art” and captures viewers in an immersive experience through dance, cinema, video, photography, installation, architecture and design. “Black Gold is the latest exhibition in MOCA’s storied succession of cutting-edge contemporary art presentations,” says Natasha Colebrook-Williams, Interim MOCA Director. “This exhibition explores the oil paradox and how entangled oil products are in our everyday life. Our mission continues to be to present diverse artists and topics that serve the greater community. MOCA is equally proud of the international outlook it is able to present and the unique exhibitions we share with our audience.” As part of the experience, viewers enter a room with reflective mirrors and asymmetrical golden barrels suspended in the air as a laser beam traverses the space. Surrounding the MOCA pond, an installation of seven barrels refers to both the chemical elements of crude oil and the seven elements of design. The exhibition will run from September 15 – November 13, 2016.
